Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus: It's Dark out There!

It's Dark out There!

Brad's NASCAR race is Saturday - can't wait! The Lupus community is starting to find out about the race and the Ride, so we're making progress. I heard of a couple of bicycle groups who might want to ride with me in a few places, so lots to do there, but in the meantime, I'm pounding the miles. Early and long days at the office leaves early, early and dark nights now for training. Long Island at night is very different than in the morning. While still pretty quiet, people are a lot less careful. I think I'll trade in my mini-headlight/tailight combo for a beacon strapped to my back. As Fall starts to crawl in and there is less morning and evening light, it'll take a traveling Mardi Gras to create a stir. Regardless, I had a great ride last night. I found some extra hills to ride on - they are much easier to climb when it's dark!

Chris - so great that you are doing this! Thank you for working so hard to spread awareness about this often debilitating disease. It is appalling that we have not seen advances in lupus treatment in over 50 years. We all thank you! Wish you were heading through Madison, WI. Maybe next time!

Thank you so much! I wish we here in Europe had people like you and Brad Coleman and all the other people involved to get into the loop with us!
I'm a Formula 1 fan but I wish that I could be today at NASCAR race to scream and cheer him on for us all!

I wish you and your daughter all the best.

Love from the Netherlans,
